Domain Names

Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research (“KISR”), a non-profit research organization, mandated by Ministry of Communications (“MOC”) to the establishment, management and operation of Kuwait Top Level Domain Name (kwTLD), have been delegated the authority by Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (“IANA”) to allocate domain names in the State of Kuwait under the .kw Top Level Domain.

Under kwTLD, third level domain names will be registered under a limited number of secondary level domains in the following format: Third level.Secondary (e.g., in the domain name, “kisr” is the third level, and “edu” is the secondary level).
